Giman

Poster, 430 x 594mm, 2017
Solo Project





Overview
Self-initiated project from the curiosity of relationship between form and meaning through using the feature of Korean word.

Design process
“Giman” mean deception in Korean. It composed by the combination of two letters “gi” and “man.” Korean vocabulary has many Sino-Korean words, so even a letter has to mean and also could be homonym that has many meanings.
       Each mean of “gi” and “man” is both deceive. But also the word “man” has another mean ten thousand. So I used this homonym and feature of Korean vocabulary, I laid out ten thousand of letters of “gi” like blind curatin and put the smile hide behind the words to express deception.
